Crespuscular Rays

I actually got to weed in the garden tonight because of an inch of rain 2 days ago. The waxing moon appeared right before I headed toward the house.

The moon always excites me. This one was 3 days from full. Our backyard faces east. I walked around the corner of the house and couldn’t believe what I saw!

A sunset with crepuscular rays. Crepuscular rays in a fan. I crossed the highway so there wouldn’t be any powerlines in the pictures. The rays were relatively faint. They had a slight greenish tint at times.  The rays would shift slightly and their width vary.

“Color therapy for the Earth” came to mind.

The experience didn’t last long … and then it had no time.

When I turned to go back across the highway, I realized a cloud being had joined me to watch one of the wonders of nature.
